Thread: A form of incontinence?

  1. #1

    Unhappy A form of incontinence?

    I've Google searched a while to find an answer to my question, with no real results.

    A few days ago I was with my father and brothers, and we were playing outside. My dad and me decided it would be funny to run inside the house and lock the door to keep everyone else stuck outside, so we ran quickly into the house.

    When I did this, I got so excited that I was having trouble running, and I also ended up wetting my pants (it was dark out and I was in black jeans, so I managed to slink away before it was noticed). Once I had started, I forced myself to try and stop, but I couldn't at all and that worries me.

    I don't usually have trouble with things like this, but every once in a while I'll have an accident. It's either when I get excited over doing something, or when someone touches me unexpectedly (I'm very sensory defensive, I'm not sure if that's important).

    Is this a form of incontinence? I'd like to approach this topic with my doctor, but I'm between moving GPs at the moment.

    Deer,

    well it could be many things ... and giving any form of diagnosis (medical) over the interenet is stupid - sorry.

    But here's the thing: go to see a specialist (urologist)... trust me, after 33 years with IC, bedwetting I've come to one conclusion regarding medical doctors: GPs know shit about incontinence issues.
    Some actually are in the believe that IC only affects the elderly or people with serious disabilities, and bedwetting is not common after 12.... others will just give you some wild prescriptions...
    Some won't belive you if it's not "text-book-issues"...

    So do yourself a favor: make an appointment with an urologist... now whilst there certainly are some that clearly shouldn't have made the exam... most are at least for basic stuff quite good.
    Anyhow: better than any GP.

    Thank you for the answer, EP01. I understand that I should go to a specialist, I'll try to find a urologist.

    I was just hoping that other people had heard of this, and might have an idea of what it is since I couldn't find anything relevant on Google search. I was not looking for anything like an actual diagnosis.

    The problem with googling / forum searching on medical matters:

    you'll get a thousand options, usually ranging from "nah.. ignore it, it's normal" to "make your final wishes... you've got terminal cancer... my brothers step son's great uncle had the same and died a miserable death twice".
    NO Medical Professional will even attempt to give you ANY idea / input / hint on such questions, because without making some tests, it's just going to be a wild guess... you might as well have cought the pox....

    Also usually most people when they google for symptoms, they end up rather hyped / scared / paranoid... it's often difficult enough for a med.pro to find out what your problem is...

    So in a word: when you're worried, off to uncle doc' with you

    To me it just sounds like you as you said have been busy or over excited doing something.You most probably needed to use the bathroom but were to busy to notice and then the accidents just happen.I would not worry to much unless it keeps happening.

    Ausguy, seriously?

    A healthy grown-up human should not just loose the control over the bladder's sphincter just because there's some excitment.
    Again, diagnosis over the net is simply put: USELESS.

    I agree with EP01 you need to get medically checked.

    Thanks for the answer Ausguy78. That's kind of what it seems like to me as well, at least a little bit.

    I understand that I need to get checked by a doctor, but the whole reason I was asking was sort of to see if anyone else had the same thing. I wasn't trying to use this as an alternative to medical care, EP01. You kind of seem hard on the matter.

    I just wanted to see if I wasn't alone.

    Yes I am. Misinformation on important health subjects is about as dangerous as it can be.
    wrong type of self diagnosis is harmful more often than not.
    Trying to find someone who has got the same "symptoms" doesn't help you, as the underlying reasons for those symptoms can be as different as apples and jerky.

    I used to be an ambulance driver for some time... so I've seen my share of shit-gone-wrong.. dudes who waited wayyy too long with getting profesional help... some because they were "diagnosed" over the internet.
    Other have self medicated and self-treated or simply ignored stuff... with a bad outcome.

    the point "of finding someone with the same symptoms" will not solve your problem, will not make it any different or easier... it just will consume time, time you maybe should spent on trying to really find out what's wrong...

    See, I've got my reasons for being hard on this.

    Once you know what the problem is, go find support groups, find people with the same diagnosis, if that's any help... if there's an issue at all...

    don't get me wrong... but it's answers like the one from ausguy - trying to tell someone (you in that case) that what happened to him (adult peeing himself involuntarily) is "normal" - no it's not. medically speaking it's actually quite to the contrary.
    Also "excitement" unless very very harsh (like life threatening situation) should certainly NOT cause a grown up person without any predisposition towards incontinence to wet themselves like this.
    Your statement can falsely reassure someone not to get the problem checked.

    Most people will have a hard time deciding to go to an urologist over incontinence issues anyhow due to shame, social stigmatization of the issue, etc... and you don't help.

    so yes, I've got a hard view on this.

    overzealous medical "professionals" are just as bad. Wait for it to happen again is my motto. If it continues, make the appointment. If not, everyone has admitted to a wetting accident at some time, and the rest lie.
